The Mission

FLIP (fight, live,¬†inspire, prevent) is a movement dedicated to making an impact by increasing¬†cancer prevention awareness,¬†reinforcing education and inspiring action. The Darby Creek Trail Run is designed to¬†inspire¬†you and to help you inspire others! FLIP’s 2012 trail run was voted,¬†“most inspiring and beautiful run in America”¬†-¬†my mom.

We’ve¬†poured our passion into this run to ensure every aspect of the event inspires:

The location: We wanted our run to be unique (without throwing paint on you), so we chose a trail run set in the beautiful woods of Darby Creek. The courses run through lush forest, along a scenic river and through the park’s bison preserve. It’s kind of impossible not to feel inspired in this setting.

The team page offers you an interactive way to share your team or individual story. Why do you run? Who do you want to inspire? Why do you want to prevent cancer? Who do you want to fight cancer for? Share your story and INSPIRE!

Team prizes awarded¬†based on several¬†‚Äúmost inspiring‚Ä̬†categories. Our goal is to encourage you to inspire as many people as possible with your personal story and to have a lot of fun doing it!¬†(Here are a few categories: most team members; most inspiring team page; highest fundraisers; and we are bringing back the costume competition).Last year we gave away¬†over $3,000 in prizes,¬†including: vacation packages; new bike gift card; restaurant gift certificates; and sports tickets.¬†(Not bad for our first event!)
